ramtha and his school, taking common people and having him educate them, a broad level of education - from the sciences to biology to psychology to theory, religious dogmas, historical information, science - the whole spectrum. and teaching it in such a way that it was never above their heads, and allowing them, then, to apply that knowledge in disciplines that he taught them, and he showed them that god does in fact live in them. so they're called masters - they're mastering their humanity, for the sake of the divine greatness, and celebrating life on a new level, a new understanding. and all of that, as we sit here today, has all been worth living through, finding my own truth, knowing what i know, and willing to live it, no matter what, has evolved me tremendously. and now in reflection, i look back and see that without adversity, we never know our own strength. >> i want to tell you that i love you - >> and we love you. >> - and that you are worth loving indeed, and for you to also understand, coming from social consciousness, for you to re-remember as it were, that your god lov

richest man in the south. well-educated, well-traveled, cultivated, walters, like morgan, had a taste for precious objects. nevertheless, he felt it was important to include a raphael in his collection. in 1901 walters acquired the madonna of the candelabra, believed to be at least partly by the master's own hand. scholars attribute the virgin and child to raphael and the angels to an assistant. walters proudly displayed his madonna in a gallery which he built adjacent to the family house in baltimore. owning a raphael had a significance beyond that of acquiring a beautiful work of art. he was the only artist whose prestige had endured all changes of taste and fashion. the next raphael acquisition marked the coming-of-age of america as a nation of collectors. the small cowper madonna, which mrs. gardner had coveted, was sold to the wideners in 1914 for the highest price that had ever been paid for a painting. outside philadelphia, the wideners built one of the grandest estates of the gilded age. re, they lived the life of american princes. p.a.b. widener made his fortune in street rai

museum is georgia's largest african american museum. our mission is to educate people about african american art, history, and culture, and we do this in a lot of different ways. but for me, beverly buchanan's show of shacks, which we've entitled "coming home," is one of the best ways we've ever done this. beverly has strong macon connections. and i think a lot of the groundwork for these shacks came to her while she was living in our community. and she's just added a figure, a large-scale, monumental figure, to onef the pieces. and i think that's an exciting and significant change. the name of the piece is called "harriet's shack," and it's harriet tubman, who the museum is named for. we honor her as a woman of strength and courage, and i think beverly does too by making her two stories tall and this giant woman that is conveying power and courage. but also there are flowers all over her dress, and she looks like she's someone you'd want to get to know. these are places that black and white, rich and poor, we all see and understand. these pieces just, i mean, they seem to dance. th
